I’m 19 years old and I got this app when I was 17 Bc I got caught doing dumb stuff so that’s on me And I don’t blame my parents for it then. But now I go to college 4 hours away from my hometown and I thought that I would be able to delete the app Bc I’m at college but I feel like I am in my childhood bedroom, the dorm I lived in creates an L shape with a separate dorm and one night it said I was in the other dorm not mine and my mom started texting me freaking out(it was only 11 o’clock). It’s gotten to the point where I’m so sick of passing my old high school while being in the car with my dad and his phone dinging and him saying “ *me* arrived at school” and then a couple of seconds later saying “*me* left school” when it dings again. The thing that gets me the most is my older brother is only a few years older than me and the app was around when he was in high school but when he would get in trouble this was never the punishment for Him and he constantly lied and where he was and stuff like that. Also my mom says she “knows” I talk to guys and why I never hang out with them at home and at college and that’s Bc I know they’re gonna wonder where I am and call and freak out and it’s so embarrassing to be with a guy and your parents calling and freaking out on you for being somewhere they don’t recognize. I know this app started with good intentions but even my moms exboyfriend who has a teenage son himself says he would never make him have the app Bc he saw how addicted and stalkerish my mom was with the app. Overall I don’t have a good relationship with my parents and the funniest part of all of it is, they make me share my location but they refuse to share theirs which I find extremely toxic Bc if you expect to know exactly where I am 24/7 why can’t I do the same to you? If it just for safety like you say and not to be controlling and stalker like.
Actual app issues now that I’ve expressed my emotions
1. Also the accuracy of this app is anything but great, I’m constantly getting texts for it saying I’m not where I say I am. Like it’ll put me a down a friends road when I’m at there house, like if my parents are gonna use this thing to watch my every move at least make sure it’s the right move.
2. Since I am in college and am expected to pay for most of my things so I have my same cell phone I got in 10th grade so it isn’t the newest thing ever. My iPhone 8+ battery is drained 24/7 from the constant background usage of this app. This is my number 1 battery drainer before Snapchat and I’m apart of the age that exclusively using snapchat for most if not all forms of communication with friends.
I got this app almost a year ago now because my moms friend told her since I started driving that she should make sure I’m doing what I am supposed to do. She made me get it and immediately she started watching it every second of the day and it isn’t just me and her in a circle it me and my whole family so it isn’t only her being able to see my location and you can just turn it on for just her and turn it off for the other people in the circle. This app makes parents wanna watch their kids 24/7. I would like to know how parents would feel if they where tracked 24/7 when they where kids. This app makes kids have to lie about what they are doing and who they are going to be with. If I would have never got this app I would not have to lie so much about where I am going and who I am gonna be with. Today my mom drove around my friends house 20 time to see if I was at his house and when I had left my phone at his house and we walked to the gas station to get food my mom freaked out because Life360 told her that I was at his house and she seen me walking to the gas station. You need to make this app better by being able to turn off who sees your location in the circle and also be able to have it in a “ghost” mode without them getting notifications it should just say in the app that you are in ghost mode and they area that u might be in. I’m really disappointed in this app and how it was made I hope you make changes soon
First off, just no. 100% don’t get this app for your kid(s), or family, or friends or even give this app any sliver of glory bc this shouldn't be glorified. The location is off about 75% of the time. The invasion of privacy that this app give parents is unreal. If you really want your kid(s) to love and respect you. Or even want them to not be sneaky and tell you things that are going on in there life this app will corrupt any chance of that ever happening. Please hear me out when I say I get that parents want the best for their kids and want them to not do all the dumb stuff like they did as teens. BUT NEWS FLASH it’s gonna happen sweetie whether you like it or not. Your kid(s) are going to grow up and not tell you anything because Of the broken bond line that you crossed. So please don’t break the bond of trust and believe when I say don’t get this app.
After I lost my partner to cancer I never trusted my new partner with my kids and I suspected her of cheating so I contacted this professional hacker Ghosthacker072(@) gmailcom to help me remotely spy on her phone so I can see who she’s seeing and what she’s upto and within 8hrs Ghosthacker072(@gmailcom helped me gain access into her device activities and I found out all she’s been doing and talking about with other men even sharing private pics with a close friend of mine so if you ever suspect anyone about anything you can easily hire this hacker to help you monitor their devices like GSP tracking,phone messages,apps,Snapchat,delete text messages,change bad reviews,change bad records,you can trust for all hacking and spying services
I got this app to keep track of my highschool daughter. It worked well until she went to her friends house and I got a notification in the middle of the night saying she had left the house...this lead me to thinking that she and her friend had snuck out. I confronted her about it and accused her of sneaking out and she denied she did. I didn't believe her and asked her friends parents if they knew anything and they had a nest camera and showed me the footage that no one had left that house that night. Now I feel horrible for not believing my daughter, i'm really embarrassed and disappointed with the inaccuracy of this app :(
this app has completely ruined my relationship with my parents. my parent and many other parents feel like since I have this app they can control every step of our days, and you say your listening my to us and made “ghost mode” but hahaha the worst thing ever. because now when I turn it off they get notifications and o get text like “turn your location on right now what are you hiding from us” and “turn your location back on and your grounded”. this app has ruined SO MANY teenagers lives by giving the parents to much power and y’all have yet to do anything about it
Personally, I’ve never had the dishonor of having to have been forced to use this app by my parent, but I’ve known a lot of my friends that have and it is a complete invasion of privacy. This app ruins kids’ social lives and promotes sneaking around nosy parents to live a normal social life. If you’re a parent reading this review, don’t get this app or you could cause your kids to start to be come depressed and even have suicidal tendencies just because you couldn’t trust them to be responsible whenever they’re out the house.
I cant believe such an app is justifiable to be released to the public. I am 18 years old and I have had this app on my phone for 2 years by my manipulative psychotic mother who uses it to fuel her controlling behavior. It’s ruining kids lives. Every word that comes out of my mouth is a lie because i can’t possibly tell them where i’m actually going. Congrats life 360 you’ve created a world with now trust and limited responsibility.
my parents track my every move. I go to work and stop for gas THEY CALL ME REPEATEDLY ASKING WHY I DID THAT!!!!!! Me stopping for GAS FOR MY CAR it takes 3 minutes. They choose to STALK me despite me having EXCELLENT grades in school and have never in my life defied her word. I am fed up all this good that i do is useless. Time to do what i want when i want. It all results in the same thing so ♀️
We have been using Life 360 for a few months now, and everything has worked pretty well. But over the last couple of weeks, it has been sending notifications to my daughter (my roommate) that I am leaving home in the middle of the night and returning a few hours later. It’s weird, but what if this happens in a bad relationship and someone is accused of going out when they haven’t.
